filmed in 10 days? it shows, 9 February 2013
Author: mark_w3 from United States

This film is one of the worst attempts at cinema I have ever seen. I sat through the entire film looking for anything good. Much over acting, poor uncreative filming, very amateurish. This will be my White Elephant gift for 2013 Holiday parties. A thousand cuts must be a metaphor for how much of the film should be removed prior to showing. I read some reviews on this and was shocked at how people can praise something that is clearly not quality work. They must be related to the film in some way. The characters are clear stereotypes, what little thrills there are - are too predictable, and devices used to justify events are very immature. I can't speak of anything good to say about the film other than it (my viewing experience) is over. My children feel as if I used the film to punish them for something they might have done in a past life. Just kidding but a horrible film. I am sure someone will say, "the reviewer just didn't get it," and they are right, I didn't neither will you, or any other viewer. It would be better to save your money and watch internet user made videos than waste your time on this film
